I don’t know, this looks infinitely better and it’s just a quick Photoshop. Same costume, so not particularly sexualized, and the added color doesn’t imbue the character with obnoxious patriotism (for a country which she has no ties to).

Godzilla 2 will feature Ghidorah. Mothra and Rodan, too.
Hmm, I didn’t think of that.
I saw this a bit ago. Not sure what it’s from, but I think it’s the perfect look for Man of Steel’s world.
Not to be a Debbie Downer, but that costume looks kind of boring to me. Not so much the design itself though, just that a little color would’ve done wonders for it.
Superman and Batman look great, but I wouldn’t have known this was Wonder Woman unless someone told me.
I’ve finally gotten back to Dark Souls II and things are off to a good start. Velstadt in the Undead Crypt didn’t go into his second phase for whatever reason, which made him a pushover this time.
Everyone says that this game is so much easier than other Souls games, but I’ve had more trouble here than DeS and Dark combined. Where I solo’d virtually everything in both of those games, I’ve had to summon people for at least half the bosses in DS2. I never had to use a shield before, where as here it’s a permanent part of my setup; rolling doesn’t seem to be nearly as effective.
Maybe I’ve just lost what little skill I had, or the game’s obsession with group encounters is just throwing me off. Either way, I’m getting stomped regularly, and that just didn’t happen with the last two games.
Rules, schmules. This is PD, not your thread.
Listen to my story.
I was born in a place called Zanarkand. I wasn’t like the other children though, for each of my legs was a different length.
Father, blessed with perfectly proportional limbs, was never there for me. My only memories are of him putting me down. Only now do I realize that this was his way of preparing me for the lopsided life that lay ahead. My mother, supportive as she was, made me a special pair of pants to accommodate my most unusual situation—pants that I continue to wear even after the surgery, as a reminder of just how far these asymmetrical legs have taken me.
Taking advantage of my newfound stability, I resolved to swim and kick shit for a living, and thus began my life as a Blitzballer.
Tales of Xillia 2
Tales of Hearts R
Theatrhythm: Curtain Call
The Evil Within
Maybe Hyrule Warriors, Smash Bros., Pokemon Omega Ruby and Oreshika, if NA gets a physical release.
Made a quick trip to GameStop and was surprised to find the Killer is Dead LE brand new for only $10. I was interested in the game before and reviews didn’t really change that, but Suda games aren’t full price purchases.
I think I’m gonna have to break my ‘no HD collections’ rule and grab 1.5 and 2.5. All of those Final Mix versions are too hard to pass up, especially Birth by Sleep.
Where’s the Colonial Marines option?
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle for PS3 is $40 on Namco Bandai’s online store right now, and first-time customers can take an extra 15% off with the coupon code BNS15OFF (works on everything, even pre-orders).
Also, 25% off all Tales games and Tales of Xillia for $20 if you pre-order Xillia 2’s Collector’s Edition.
Been meaning to pick up JoJo, and $34 is a lot cheaper than anyone else has it for.
Wow. I think I’ll wait a bit longer, but definitely not six months. I’ve already had to make a post-it reminding me not to spend the money for whenever it comes in.
The Blu-ray of episode 4. I didn’t know the DVD release had more than one episode per package. But yeah, it was listed as “We’ll get it for you” a month ago when I placed my order. I figured it would take a few weeks tops, but no word yet. Other sites have it in stock so I may end up cancelling with Right Stuf and go elsewhere.
Bah, Zelda II is pretty darn good. One of the best games on NES even. It gets a bum rap because it’s different and ‘difficult.’
And after a visit from a mailman who probably wishes I bought less crap on the Internet, my weekend’s all sorted.
I read the first ~15 chapters, decided it was perfect and ordered it all in one go. Missing volume 16 which was backordered. Hopefully that doesn’t take as long to come in as Gundam UC 4 BD, which after a month is still on order. Beginning to wonder if it’s gone out of print or something.
Well, I think it’d be kind of crappy to toss out the series’ main character now that we’re finally at the end of his story. I do want more TAV, and I think we’ll see plenty of ‘em judging by Dream Drop Distance’s ending, but I don’t really mind Sora either.
Luckily I think we’ll get those kind of interesting characters right from the start in whatever follows the Dark Seeker Saga. Maybe TAV or some of the Nobodies will even be the main characters of what comes next. They haven’t really said how the series will continue, just that it will.
Huh, so that Nomura Batman figure that everyone
hates thought was so Kingdom Hearts-esque actually came before Kingdom Hearts was a thing. It’s a concept from a cancelled game he was working on.
He also wants to do some Birth by Sleep figures, which would be lovely. Terra, Aqua and Ventus came along and blew Sora, Riku and Kairi out of the water as far as protagonists go. I almost wish they were the leads in Kingdom Hearts III.
Uh oh, I stumbled into that part of Amazon that has tons of old shows that I didn’t know were licensed. We’re dangerously close to impulse buy territory here.
I can’t remember exactly how old I was or what my very first anime was, but it was probably an American adaptation. Voltron or Robotech maybe; Transformers for sure, if it’s considered an anime. This was mostly because my older brother was into these shows, and when we were little there was only one TV, and so that’s what I was into.
The first anime that I really got hooked on was Dragon Ball Z, by way of Toonami, and I guess they started airing Gundam Wing a year later. Those two were like oxygen; I couldn’t live without ‘em. I had to run all the way home from school to catch DBZ, and it’s all I thought about. When I wasn’t watching DBZ and Gundam, I was talking about them with friends, drawing in class, looking up all of the awesome action figures and models that would be my presents for every Christmas and birthday for the next five years. I practically lived on Gundam Shop (my sanctuary), buying HG and MG kits of shows that I’d never even heard of.
I watched everything else on Toonami too. Tenchi, Outlaw Star, Cowboy Bebop, YuYu Hakusho, Rurouni Kenshin, Inuyasha, Evangelion, etc. I kind of lost interest around 2006 or 2007 when I started following video games more closely. I don’t think I watched a single anime between 2008 and 2011. Since then I’ve sort of come back to it, but mostly to re-watch old shows I know I like. I’ve checked out some newer stuff like Bakemonogatari, Code Geass, Redline, Last Exile, Kill la Kill and so on, but only really follow new entries in old series — Gundam Unicorn and Tomino’s new series (two months!), Rebuild of Evangelion, Lupin III: WCFM, new DBZ movies.
—Probably every American kid from the 90s.
I wonder if Zelda and Sheik rule out Tetra at this point. I hope not, because that would be the best.
Although, considering how random Agitha was, I kind of expect Link’s grandma to be the only character they pull from WW.
I didn’t think it was possible to be this excited for a Musou game. Although a larger roster doesn’t make much of a difference at this point because I’m never gonna pick anyone but Impa and Sheik.
As amazing as the figures from Hot Toys are, I know that they’ll always be way outside of my toys budget. Your only other option for Plissken comes in at a whopping $10, but doesn’t look quite as good:
Pretty cool and I’d definitely like to see his take on other characters. I think some of Batman’s recent designs (Nolan’s films, Arkham games) lend themselves well to this heavily armored look, but not so much Joker, Riddler, etc. I’m curious whether they’d get the same treatment or not.
If nothing else, Bane and Mr. Freeze could look really neat in this style.
Am I just bad at Google or is there still no release window for Evangelion 3.33? Berserk will have finished by the time we get it, and I’ll be dead long before 4.0.
I got Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon VHS like this for my birthday one year, except mine had a Japanese Frosted Flakes commercial at the beginning and my mom accidentally taped over it.
I like it. Surprising, right? It obviously won’t ever be used in anything official and different is kind of the point of a variant line, so I don’t really understand the negative reaction from all over.
Boy, the world of video games sure is a mess right now. Each day seems worse than the last, like it’s all building up to something vaguely apocalyptic. I wouldn’t be surprised if I came home from work tomorrow to find PD as a big, orange puddle.
